Capresso Perfectea 260.03 Boiled water tastes like chemicals

When I boil water in the kettle, it comes out smelling and tasting like chemicals. Is this bad? Is there any way to get rid of it? Does it go away over time?

The chemical taste and smell is a common byproduct of the kettle due to the manufacturing process. However, there is a simple way to take care of your problem.

To remove the chemical smell and taste, boil vinegar mixed with water in the kettle. After the mixture comes to a boil, allow it to sit for 3 minutes before pouring out the mixture. Repeat the process with water several times to remove the vinegar smell. The smell should go away with repeated use.

I did the vinegar fix and it worked then but failed again in with the next pot.

I have isolated this to the type of plastic that is used in the kettle.

Our previous plastic kettle (Hinari) made an excellent cup of tea with no smell of chlorine or plastic.

Our new kettle (Tristar) is awful in this respect.

I have proved that it is nothing to do with the water. I have use filtered (Brita) and also mineral water in my new kettle and both water types do not solve the problem.

Boiling the water in a saucepan eliminates the bad taste and smell immediately

Solution : Buy an all-metal kettle (not so easy to find)

Dont ask me what type as I am just starting my search.

Happy hunting

We have had this problem with many new jugs . I believe I have the answer now .

To a half filled jug of warm water, add a desert spoon of "Jif " , an abrasive white creamy cleaner. Leave for 10mins or so . Scrub inside of jug thoroughly with dish wash brush or similar , including underside of lid .

Discard contents, and refill and boil, discard several times . .

If water does taste better, but not good enough, repeat Jif process. .

I wish I knew about this process years ago ...
